There was a lot at stake for NAC Breda, when they faced PSV on Sunday afternoon, but the hosts never met the high expectations. PSV eased to an emphatic 2-6 win in Breda, so that the yellow blacks will have to secure top flight status by playing play-off games. It was not before PSV had taken a comfortable 1-5 lead within 60 minutes that NAC were prepared to stage a fight back. It was too late to avert the situation, though, so that the Breda outfit will now meet TOP Oss. Hiddink guided PSV to their 200th Eredivisie victory, while he took charge. PSV captain Phillip Cocu scored the final goal, a few seconds before the final whistle went, which could rightly be nominated for the ‘goal of the Year’ award. He unleashed a shot from the middle line that sailed over NAC goalkeeper Davy Schollen into the roof of the net. It was the sixth time a PSV player found the net on Sunday afternoon and it was a peach of a goal!Vennegoor of HesselinkNothing but prestige and honour were at stake for PSV. The hosts faced an uphill battle, though, as they needed a win. The matchbook programme was quite clear: Beat PSV or take part in the playoffs, was the headline in bold letter type. NAC, together with ADO and Sparta, tried to avoid the playoffs, in which First Division sides also participate. . PSV did not want to cooperate and did what was expected of them. The ruling Dutch champions eased to an emphatic win in the Rat Verlegh Stadium. Only four minutes were on the clock, when Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink was allowed to unleash a shot that went home; 0-1, by which he took his season’s tally to ten goals. The faithful NAC home fans were given new hope, when Leonardo was hacked down in the area, but 19-year-old Belgian defender Derijck failed to convert from the spot. Gomes could easily stop his weak effort and minutes later Jefferson Farfán rubbed more salt into the wounds by netting his twentieth goal of the season; 0-2.NAC had precious little to offer, apart from efforts by Mendes and Dib. Vonlanthen, on loan from PSV, was brought on after Leonardo had limped off the pitch, but NAC never believed in a happy ending. Even the usually fanatic B-side kept embarrassingly quiet. Ooijer comebackThings got worse for the hosts, when PSV added two more goals within four minutes after the break. Vennegoor of Hesselink made it 0-3 and one minute later the ball fell to him. He delivered a cross for Farfán, who clinically finished. The game was killed off before it had actually started and the first few spectators were already on their way home. Deputy goalkeeper Edwin Zoetebier had been brought on during half time, as Guus Hiddink wanted to give the Volendam born goalie, who leaves PSV at the end of the season, an opportunity to say goodbye to his fans. André Ooijer also left the bench. It was the first time he returned to action, since he broke a toe during the Lyon clash. Aissati was the third substitute; he took over from Lamey. Phillip CocuVonlanthen showed his skills by shaking off two defenders, before he pulled a goal back; 1-4. PSV immediately responded when Lucius pounced on a rebound. He squared the ball back for Väyrynen, who prodded home; 1-5. NAC pulled themselves together and started to battle. Derijck made it 2-5, following a well-worked move and NAC created some more chances, to the delight of the home crowd. It was a short-lived revival, though. PSV controlled the game and Cocu put the icing on the cake by scoring a miracle goal. All the spectators that had not left the stadium yet rewarded him with a standing ovation.NAC will now focus on the playoffs. They will first meet TOP Oss, next Friday. PSV have one more challenge this season. They will travel to the Rotterdam Kuip on Sunday 7 May, where they meet Ajax in the Gatorade Cup final.
